Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
Your potential tenant cannot file another Chapter 7 for at least another 3 years, and it would not make sense for him to file a Chapter 11, because it costs $1,000 to file a Chapter 11. But he could file a Chapter 13 at any time.
If your potential tenant did file a Bankruptcy, that would only temporarily suspend the eviction process. The suspension would not have to last longer than a few weeks, and then the eviction proceeding could resume, in the same manner as before the Bankruptcy was filed.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
he was approved chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2008, how many year he can apply again ? according your answer, 3 years he can apply, meaning now he can apply again anytime, right ?
Thanks for help.
